I had a lumpectomy, finished chemo, finished radiation. Now what tests should the doctor order to verify that the cancer is gone? Last time I saw my Onc. I asked if I was cancer free. He said he would think yes and that once I finished radiation (6/26) he would order some tests. I read about people having bone scans and cat scans etc. I never had one before treatment ... is that normal ...He said I'd have tumor marker blood test, mammogram and a chest x-ray. Is there something else I should insist upon having?
